Q: There is new questionnaire required by SAFEA, before FEC is issued?

Last week I had to fulfill online Test, before School will apply for new FEC. I was told by Chinese manager, that Test is required by Chinese Government, before issuing FEC.

 

Name of the Test (website) is 'Evaluation System for Foreign Language Expert'. Manager told me, System is available online. I cannot get web link, because Internet in Tianjin Hotel is connected to 'turtle' server.   

 

Evaluation System has 5 parts:

 

- Background info: questions from Resume with photo; 

- Behavior Style Test: psychological personality test with around 80 question, where you must choose 'intensity' level of the question from 1-5; i.e. 'I get angry very easy'., or 'I never spend more than I can afford.', and so on; 20'

- Basic Knowledge Test: questions about China, i.e 'Who was Chinese president?' (choose between three Chinese names listed), or 'What is the color of wedding dress in China?' (three colors listed); 20'

- Writing Test: Give advice to Chinese students wishing to study on top 5 Western Universities?' No more than 200 words; 15'

 

Test is timely limited, and give evaluation of your personality and teaching knowledge. I am not sure, what numbers do they use for 'graduating' or 'failing' the Test.

From the questions you listed, it sounds like they got it from a Wal-Mart Employee Application Form.

It is actually required in certain cities, it is a BS test. The questions come from Chinese Tests. It's questions cover topics about obscure teaching styles and various literature. Basically it seems to be designed to make foreigners look equal to Chinese English teachers because it has very little to do with actual English ability such as the IELTS or TOEFL. It is more about what Chinese English teachers learn.

I had to pass that test when i was teaching at a university. I never been told why I should pass it... Some questions evaluate your knowledge of Chinese culture, the kind of things you would read on the last pages of the Lonely Planet. You have a lot of fairly transparent questions to evaluate "your abilities to teach". Like "would you punch a kid ?" ^^

If it is to measure the teaching skills and knowledge of educational issues and methodologies and principles, then it fails in doing so.  I have a teaching license from my country and I had to answer questions about educational theories, best practices and history of education.  Since I majored in English, I had an additional exam on English grammar, English Literature, and reading comprehension. Math majors had to be asked about math core subjects.  I was not given this test in Shanghai when I taught there in 2009 but if I will be given this test now, I will fail the Chinese culture part unless I read up on it since I only know the very basic information about China.  I know that the English part will be a breeze. The knowledge of education may be a bit tricky if they are not using the Western model.

When you do the test you need google open in another window. You need to google fast. I didn't know the date of the revolution nor the year that macau reunited with china. I'm also not so good with the names of chinese philospers. Perfectly reasonable test for foreigners to takeno

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
